Adorable Tent Cards for Spiced Cupcakes

Happy Sunday Crafters and Bakers!

I just made some DELICIOUS Spiced Cupcakes for my Hostess Group tomorrow. These always disappear so fast, I may have to hide them from my family until tomorrow!:)  Maybe next time I should just make a double batch, eh?!  It would be easier than guarding them like Fort Knox.  Anyway…

Spiced Cupcakes close upI made the recipe for “Pistachio Pudding” Cupcakes back in May to celebrate the new Stampin’ Up! In Color called “Pistachio Pudding”

This time, I decided to spice them up for the fall using “Spice Cake” cake mix and butterscotch pudding.  For the icing I used Cheesecake pudding. I even sprinkled the top with cinnamon.

All I can say is YUM…well and EASY!:)  This recipe with all of it’s variations is always a BIG HIT!:)

Here, I decorated the plate of them using the tent cards from Thankful Tablescapes Simply Created Kit (#133463, $19.95).  The kit even comes with a Chalk Talk Marker to write on the Chalkboard labels with!

You will use this kit in many ways over the holidays.  Check back tomorrow to see what else I make with it!

What’s a Pirate’s Favorite Chocolate?

Happy Monday, Crafters!

Owl Pirate, close upDid you figure out my little riddle?  No?

Well… a pirate’s favorite chocolate is Ghir “Argh” delli Chocolate!:)

OK, I am a little silly this Monday morning!  Hope you didn’t snort coffee out of your nose…:)

I sent these little cuties to my customers this month as my little way of saying “Thank You!” I think he is adorable and I hope you do, too!

I used the Owl Builder Punch (#118704, $16.95) for the body and bandana and the Elegant Butterfly Punch (#127526, $15.95) for his wings. (using Basic Black cardstock).

I used small scraps of Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper (#132185, $10.95) for his vest.  I also added 3 small pearls (#119247, $4.95).  Even a pirate needs a little bling!:)

He is popped up on this little treat holder using Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430, $3.95 for 300 dots).

Owl Pirate Treat HolderHere is a full view of the treat holder that my pirate sits on.  It is a perfect way to give Ghirardelli, or Ghir “Argh” delli Chocolates!:)

-Start with a piece of 6×6 Designer Series Paper. (I used Witches’ Brew DSP.)

-Fold in half on the diagonal.

-Fold the right side of the triangle and pull it over to the left side and crease well.

-Repeat on the left side and adhere down using SNAIL.

-Then pull the top part of the triangle straight down to create a pocket.  And adhere  this part down, too.

If you need more directions, please let me know in the comment section below.

Chalk Talk Holder for Halloween Treats

Greetings Paper Crafters!

Chalk Talk Halloween Treat HolderHere’s another Halloween treat holder I wanted to share with you.  This one uses the Chalk Talk Bundle which combines the two coordinating products (stamp set and framelits) at a savings of 15% off the separate list prices!

The wood mount Chalk Talk stamp set/framelit Bundle is #132731, $43.25.  And the clear mount Chalk Talk stamp set and framelit Bundle is #132730, $37.25.    Use the stamp set first to create your desired image and then cut it out using the Framelits, Magnetic Platform (#130658, $39.95) and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (#113439, $99.95).

Here are the products in the Bundle:

In addition to the Bundle listed above you will need:

-3/4″ Basic Black Chevron ribbon (#130010, $8.95 for 10 yards) cut one at 6″ piece (you will later fray) for the top and another at 16″ to wrap around the treat holder.  (this keeps the treat in place)

-Very important: rub the cardstock first with the Embossing Buddy (#103083, $5.95) to keep the glitter on just the image.

-Ink the skull stamp (from the Halloween Hello Stamp set (Wood #131718, $18.95 or Clear #131721, $14.95) on Very Vanilla cardstock (small scrap) in Versa Mark (#102283, $7.50).

-Then sprinkle Heat and Stick Powder (#100625, $4.50) over the image.  Shake excess powder off and return to container.

-Use Heat Tool (#129053, $29.95) just  until the powder turns shiny.

-Then sprinkle Black Stampin’ Glitter (#132206, $7.95 for 2 containers: black and orange), covering the image.  Shake off excess glitter and return to container.  Use Heat Tool and reheat the image to set the glitter into place.

-Punch out the skull image using the 1″ Circle Punch 9#119868, $12.95).

-Punch out Basic Black cardstock using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch (#119861, $15.95).   Pop the skull circle onto the back circle using 1 Stampin’ Dimensional ($104430, $3.95 for 300).

-Adhere to the middle of the Framleit cut out using Snail adhesive.

Chalk Talk w/candy-side view-Place your desired candy of choice into the pouch and tie the Chevron ribbon around to contain the candy.  (Hershey Fun Size Candy Bars, not miniatures, worked great!)

-Add a button, if desired, using a mini glue dot.

Skull tag-Slide the skull tag under the Chevron ribbon.

Wrapped Hershey Nuggets for Halloween Treat Holders

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Halloween Treat Holders for Hershey NuggetsHappy Halloween…just a little early!  Before I get into the supplies needed for this project, make sure you click on the “Shop Online” link to the left so you can get everything you need for Halloween now in order to get a jump start on making these adorable Halloween goodies!  Thank you in advance for your order! :)

These are the wrapped Hershey Nuggets that are inside the Halloween themed treat holders.

Here’s a Trick of the Trade:

-First cut a 3 x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper. (TIP: make sure the design is going in the best direction for your project BEFORE you cut).

-The run a piece of Sticky Strip (#104294, $6.95 for 10 yards) along the 12″ side of paper.

-Normally, you would cut your paper into 1 x 3″ pieces.  But with the specially designed paper in the Witches’ Brew DSP, see below (the design is screaming to be used to wrap Nuggets!), you will need to cut them at 1-1/8″ instead of 1″.  You will first have to cut off a little bit on each side so the sentiment design (“Eat if You Dare”) lines up on top of the Nugget.


Bats about You Wrapped NuggetNow aren’t these guys cute? I first saw them on Page 5 of the Holiday Catalog.  Well that is not totally true…I passed them up MANY times when I first started flipping thru this awesome catalog! lol!  Then one day, I saw them!  OOOH, I can make those!  So here’s what I did:

-Cut out an 8 x 3″piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock (#131202, $6.95)

-Apply Sticky Strip (#104294, $6.95 for 10 yards) along the 8″ edge of the cardstock.

-Cut the cardstock into 1 x 3″ strips.

-Use Versa Mark to stamp the “Bats About You” sentiment from Halloween Hello stamp set (Wood Mount #131718, $18.95 or Clear Mount #131721, $14.95) onto the cardstock.  Since he sentiment is longer than it is wide, you will stamp it in the middle of the 3″ piece of paper…but going up and down (not side to side).

-Sprinkle Black Embossing Powder (#109133, $4.75) on top of the stamped image and pour excess back into the container.  Shake any excess powder off and heat with the Heat Tool (#129053, $29.95).  For the wings, see yesterday’s post for the Bat Purse.  Apply the wings to the back of the Nugget using Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430, $3.95)

I used Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper (#132185, $10.95 for 12 sheets of 12  x12″ paper).
